EXPIRED: 04/08/10 – James Aubrey, 62 ,was a British stage and screen actor who gained fame at a very early age and had a decent career throughout his life.
But he never really regained the notoriety of his breakout movie role. He was only 15 when Aubrey became the leader of a pack of wild boys who resort to making their own society when their jet crash lands in a deserted island. The movie was the original 1962 Lord of the Flies.
I’ll always remember fearing being – but wanting to be – Ralphie.
Interesting, much later in life, Aubrey played a character named BJ in in the Sex Pistols movie The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle. Aubrey and the director of that movie, Malcolm Mclaren, died on the same day.
